Someone in the NOPD, NOFD forgot to pick up the batteries

More disturbing that the devestation and the loss of life and the looting is this simple far: It is reported in various locations that communication is breaking down among public safety providers because they don't have anyplace to charge their radios.

Quiz: Besides beer and cigarettes, what is the most important commodity to stockpile against a hurricane? Quick, quick, before Dr. Nash Robert's smacks your knuckles. Batteries. That's right, batteries. Apparently the rechargeable radios used by public safety officials are running down and can't be recharged, hampering communications among police and fire and other officials in Orleans Parish.

Incredible.
